  1. It amazes me to see all those glittering towers in LIC. When I was growing up, my family owned the Fink Baking Co., which was located not far from the Pepsi sign. Even in the late 1970s and early 1980s, the area looked like a throwback to the 1930s — cobblestone streets, factories and warehouses, old brownstones. Just one more piece of old New York buried under glass and steel.

  2. Brooklyn is quickly becoming a glass and steel landscape. Did you go to summer camp in the Catskills? I distinctly remember one of my buddies saying his family were the Finks of Fink Baking. I went to Lakota in Wurtsboro and Wheelock in Accord.

  3. No summer camp for me. Depending on your age, that could have been my cousin Jon.

  4. My landlord @175 broadway claimed his family owned fink bakery

  5. Wasn’t the NYC DJ Jimmy Fink part of your family eric?

  6. Boxing Bags
